A pregnant woman helped an assailant to repeatedly shoot her own mother with a stun gun so the pair could steal her jewels and cash, a Chicago courtroom heard.
Expectant mother Julie Franck allegedly donned a ski mask to conceal her identity as her mother was attacked by an unknown accomplice outside her home.
The mystery shooter fired a stun gun around 15 times at Franck's 55-year-old mother outside a block of flats in, Chicago, on October 9th.
The pair then allegedly stole her $40,000 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring and $200 in cash. Cook County bond court heard the pair also took credit and debit cards, the Chicago Tribune reports.
A witness was able to pull off Franck's ski mask before the duo sped off in a Smart Car after the robbery, the court was told.
